Splender Special

Better be good, I’ve said

Better be bad, I’ve done

Better be told what you want

Better believe in what?

Better to think about it

Better to live without it

Better to be told what you want

Better believe in what?

You think you’re so special

You think you’re so clean

You think you’re just better than me

Well first I chew you in

And then I spit you out

Better to leave, I doubt it

Better to talk, about it

Better be told what you want

Better believe in what?

I wanna let go

I wanna stay home

And be myself

I wanna let go

I wanna stay home

I’m justified

You think it gets better than this?

But should I take you in?

Splender Happier This Way

You try to scream into the megaphone

You try to call me on the telephone

While I’m sinking at the bottom

And you don’t even know my name

First you tell me it was copacetic

Then you tell me that was hypothetic

While I’m choking at the bottom

And you don’t even know my name

But I’m happier this way

I found God he dropped me yesterday

But I’m happier this way

I’ll try harder now to disobey

But I’m happier this way

You try to hold me on the dirty floor

You try to kiss me with your cold sores

While I’m burning at the bottom

As you’re blowing along the flame

But I’m happier this way

I found God he kicked me yesterday

But I am happier this way

I try harder now to disobey

But I am happier this way

I’m a leech

I’m a lie

I believe all the hype

What I need, I’m denied

Water me as you waste my time

So you tell me that you really care

But I notice that you’re never there

While I’m fucked and at the bottom

And you don’t even know my name

But I’m happier this way

I found God, he beat me yesterday

But I’m happier this way

I try harder now to disobey

But I’m happier this way

Happier this way

Splender Spin

There was a bright light

But it was an off white

Upside down memory

I’m caught in a landslide

I’m caught in a joyride

As my blood

Begins to thin…

You say it’s a fact

You say it’s a feeling

To stab in my back

So long, sorry

It makes me cry

(It makes me sad)

So wrong, so rare

But I don’t feel

And you’re not there

And I don’t want you back

Well you had a hard day

Of pushing me away

Please don’t push

I fall easily

Well you put a hard strain

Hard on the membrane

I react to words you say

It’s not like I care

It’s not like I’m bleeding

Or numb everywhere

But I don’t

‘Cuz I stopped spinning around for you

There was a bright light

But it was an off white

And all the world came

Crashing down

I’m caught in a landslide

I’m caught in a joyride

As my blood

Begins to thin…

You say it’s a fact

You say it’s a feeling

To stab in my back

But I don’t feel it coming on again

It’s making me high

‘Cuz I stopped spinning around for you

Splender Wide Awake

Does anybody hear?

I’m sorry that I’m late

I hate to keep you waiting

I try to get it right

But all I get is wrong

My memories are fading long

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna live myself to the bitter top

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna spin my wheels till I make it stop

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna build my ship till I’ve had enough

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna dive myself into this water

I’m sorry that I’m late

It happens all the time

And if you walked away

You know you’d do better

I try to get it right

But all I get is wrong

My memories are fading long

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna live myself to the bitter top

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna spin my wheels till I make it stop

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna build my ship till I’ve had enough

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna dive myself into this water

As long as I am wide awake

As long as I am wide awake

As long as I am wide awake

As long as I am wide awake

And I left my pieces everywhere

And I sat my arse down on this chair

Come and stare

I’ll be here

As long as I’m alive

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna live myself to the bitter top

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna spin my wheels till I make it stop

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna build my ship till I’ve had enough

I’m waking up

I’m waking up

I wanna dive myself into this water

As long as I am wide awake (I’m waking up)

As long as I am wide awake (I’m waking up)

As long as I am wide awake (I’m waking up)

As long as I am wide awake

Is anybody here?

I’m sorry that I’m late

I have to go

Splender No Big Deal

Don’t kiss it goodbye.

Don’t even turn out the lights.

No need to make a big deal out of it.

I said no.

Don’t tell me its fine.

Go ahead and leave me behind.

No need to make a big deal out of it.

I said,

Like a row of bones,

stitch me up and the flesh is sewn.

Now it feels like I can’t sleep,

lying here on the busted sheet.

I just need a microphone,

turn it up cause the box is stone.

This is a place I call home,

all alone in my head.

I won’t take it, if you break it,

don’t mistake it, I can’t fake it, I depend on you.

Goodbye, cruel world.

No, don’t kiss it goodbye.

Don’t even turn out the lights.

No need to make a big deal out of it.

I said no.

Don’t tell me inside.

Go ahead leave me behind.

I told you everything’s fine;

don’t make a deal out of it.

Like I always said,

close your mouth and you show respect.

You might push to make it fit,

if I dont keep ahead of all of that s#*t.

I don’t want to make it bad.

If you can’t come I won’t be sad.

I do believe I might be dead,

all alone in my head.

I fall slowly, don’t look for me,

if you see me, don’t inform me, I depend on you.

Goodbye, cruel world.

What a place, just to waste.

I can’t fix, what I’ve done.

I can’t trace, time and space.

Don’t erase, what I’ve done.

I can hear it, don’t you hear it,

come and steer it, don’t get near it, I depend on you.

No, don’t kiss it goodbye.

Don’t even turn out the lights.

No need to make a big deal out of it.

I said no.

Don’t tell me inside.

Go ahead and leave me behind.

I told you everything’s fine;

don’t make a deal out of it.

No, don’t kiss it goodbye.

Go ahead and leave me behind.

I told you everything’s fine;

don’t make a deal out of it.

Splender London

I’ve been to London

I’ve sailed a ship around the world

I’ve counted angels

I’ve seen a tangerine girl

And though it’s leading me on

And though I know that it’s wrong

And though I’m living my dream

I still can’t seem to move on

I’ve swallowed aspirin

I’ve seen the white of my own eyes

I’ve felt the hunger

I’ve swallowed handfuls of flies

I’ve watched the felines

I’ve watched them scratch

My skin away

I’ve tripped the land mines

I’ve watched them

Blow my face away

I still can’t finish this song

As she sang on…

Splender But, Anyway

I think I’ve had enough.

I think I might erupt.

I’m looking for some information.

It’s digging in the skin.

Whenever I begin,

There’s gonna be a complication.

I take another breath,

It’s deeper than the rest.

I’m swimming to the final breaker.

It’s sitting in my mouth.

I wanna get it out.

I wanna know when somethings on,

But anyway,

I just can’t be myself today, apparently

But anyway,

Cause nothing seems to come to me so easily.

But anyway,

Cause I mistake my memories for company.

But what a day, I’ve gotta say,

I can’t believe in myself today.

Sitting on the bed,

Every finger spread,

Looking for some motivation.

If I can offend,

I’ll try to fit in

And I dont need an explanation.

I think I’d better wake.

I’m starting to deflate.

I’m looking for some compensation.

I’ll never understand.

I’ll never be a man,

When I don’t know when something’s on,

But Anyway,

I just can’t be myself today, apparently

But Anyway,

Cause nothing seems to come to me, not possibly.

But anyway,

Cause I mistake my symphony for suffering.

But what a day, I’ve gotta say,

I can’t believe in myself this way.

And I’ll face it face down, the long way.

And I’ll face it face down, the long way.

I think it’s got an end.

I think it’s gonna bend.

I think I gotta a new impression.

So tell me how I look.

Tell me what I took,

To try to keep the conversation.

I think I’ll get it right.

I’m fucking with the light.

I’ll turn it to the situation.

I’m doing what I can.

I’ll never understand,

When I don’t see when something’s on

But Anyway,

I just can’t be myself today, apparently

But Anyway,

Cause nothing seems to come to me so happily.

But anyway,

Cause I mistake my memories for company.

But what a day, I’ve gotta say,

They’re getting harder to seperate.

But Anyway,

I just can’t be myself today, apparently

But Anyway,

Cause nothing seems to come to me, not possibly.

But anyway,

Cause I mistake my symphony for suffering.

But what a day, I’ve gotta say,

I can’t believe in myself today.

I can’t believe in myself today.

I can’t believe in myself today.

I can’t believe in myself today.

I can’t believe in myself today.

Splender Save It For Later

“So you’re thinkin’ about tomorrow

and all those simple things you think you might like

but you’ve been sipping in the daylight, you see

well I’ve been trying to keep things light

So you’re looking for approval

to do those stupid things your father might like

well you might kill youself to get it, you see

but it might never make things right

it just might leave you more uptight…

And all the things within the world

and all the boys and all the girls

who never seem to get enough

they save it for later, you see

All the saints and all the freaks and all the strange philosophies

the novelties and memories

they save it for later you see,

they save it for later you see…

So now you’re looking for some revelation

but you’re still lying there, still in your bed

well I’ve been spilling with emotions

but have you heard a word I’ve said…

So you’re thinking about tomorrow

by reliving every minute of your past

well I’m just living for the moment, you see

’cause I’m just trying to make it last

’cause I’ve just seen it go too fast

And all the things within the world

and all the boys and all the girls

who never seem to get enough

they save it for later, you see

All the saints and all the freaks and all the strange philosophies

the novelties and memories

they save it for later you see,

save it for later you see…

And the best part of my life

is the worst part of your day

And the best part of my song

is the last part you ever play…

And all the things within the world

and all the boys and all the girls

who never seem to get enough

they save it for later, you see

All the saints and all the freaks and all the strange philosophies

and everyone who never speaks

they save it for later you see,

Then all the things within the world

and every boy and every girl

who never seems to get enough

they save it for later, you see

Every time you build it up and put it in your paper cup

it never seems to be enough

you save it for later you see,

you save it for later you see,

don’t save it for later, you see

your life would be greater you see…”

Splender Monotone

Roll over monotone

I’ve got something to say to you

I can’t speak in stereo

And I don’t want you to be confused

There’s no need to analyze

There’s no need to form an affliction

You’re so bored and paralyzed

As you’re making another excuse

I can’t handle it, I’m intolerant

I rip off my shirt and I deal with it

I won’t throw a fit, I don’t give a shit

I fall flat on my face in the back

Of this one

Collect me monotone

‘Cuz I think I’m fallen to pieces

I’m so strange, you should’ve known

While I lick all the salt off these wounds

For this one

I’m hating myself for

I want nothing else more

We have such a strange design

Splender I Think God Can Explain

There’s a lot of things I understand

And there’s a lot of things that I don’t want to know

But you’re the only face I recognize

It’s so damn sweet of you to look me in the eyes

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I believe I’m the same

I get carried away

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I’m relieved, I’m relaxed

I’ll get over it, yeah

The scent of vaseline in the summertime

The feel of an ice cube melting over time

The world seems bigger than both of us

Yet it seems so small when I begin to cry

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I believe I’m the same

I get carried away

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I’m relieved, I’m relaxed

I’ll get over it, yeah

I’m so much better than you guessed

I’m so much bigger than you guessed

I’m so much brighter than you guessed

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I believe I’m the same

I get carried away

It’s alright, I’m ok

I think God can explain

I’m relieved, I’m relaxed

I’ll get off of your back

I think God can explain, I think God can explain

I think God can explain
